Violence and Victorian gentility meet in this powerful adaptation of one of Dickens's greatest creations. While passing through the churchyard where his mother is buried, a young Pip encounters a desperate convict, Magwitch. Soon afterward he is summoned by the wealthy, eccentric recluse Miss Havisham to play with her beautiful but cruel ward Estella. With these two remarkable encounters begins Pip's epic journey from boy to man. When Pip comes of age, Miss Havisham's lawyer, Jaggers, informs him he has come into great wealth. But who exactly is the source of his mysterious new fortune? And perhaps it is not so easy -- or desirable -- to leave his humble past behind.
Editor's Note
Charles Dickens' story of humble village boy Pip, who is orphaned at an early age. He is brought up by his domineering sister and her blacksmith husband. The story follows his journey through boyhood and into the fine life he has made for himself in London. His callous behavior catches up to him as he is faced with the discovery of his true self. A BBC production.
